Is MetaTalk not updating? Is this part of the April Fools thing? There are three MeTa posts about it now. :(

Before i saw the title, I just assumed you were flaming out, Dobbs.

I was kinda hoping he was the poster who'd cut off his hand and was coming here to say goodbye. Alas.

Grr. There were no MeTa posts on April 1 when I created the post.

I'm laughing my head off. This is beautiful. Thanks. :)

Dobbs actually did leave the internets with a grand announcement at the beginning of 2006, though he never went through with it. Good times.

Dennis, y'all were too big a draw. I couldn't kick.

Dobbs isn't a flamer. Honeychild, I am some flamer. I am more gay than Liberace at a circuit party. I have sucked morre cock than Imelda Marcos begging for new shoes.

mathowie, I dunno who wrote those questions, but that's the funniest goddamn thing I've seen this year. You definitely, definitely need to save those for posterity. :)

A full page of fake askme isn't easy to pull off, much less in high style.

I just wish I could see some of the answers! :)

cortex and I [and mathowie? it's so hard to tell who is doing what in a Google doc...] wrote most of them and a few were copy/pasted from the awesome MetaChat thread about what not to post to AskMe.

I do not understand what any of this is about.

Why is this thread still here?

*Sprays thread-be-gone everywhere!*

So I can flame out.

So long, fuckers!

Thanks, loq. I've had compliments before, but coming from you it really means something.

JWZ on a desert island? JWZ considering using vi? That’s not even trying! From the thread:

desert island: emacs or vi? This is not hypothetical.

Thread-be-gone? Is that what the Emperor's drycleaners used on his new clothes?

(That was a minor niggle, by the way; the page had me splitting my sides all morning.)

Are niggles the new balcks?
That link don't point nowhere.
